We invite YOU and your friends to join us for a profound documentary movie about the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold.
Tuesday, April 23 6:00-8:00pm The Willow Tree Coffeehouse and Music Hall in Johnson City - co-hosted by the Green Interfaith Network.
Through this gripping film, DARK MONEY, examines the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana - a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide - to follow a local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court's Citizens United decision.
It is a true story of how a gum-shoe, detective-journalist plying his trade and uncovering a morass of corruption and deceit. SUSPENSEFUL! You will be gripped to your seat!
“After the movie…now what?” Let’s have a conversation about bringing ACTION to this issue, right here in Northeast Tennessee! Having just returned from the “Unrig The System” Summit in Nashville, Dr. Noel Marshall and Bob Warner will share the current resources available, the victories that have already occurred and the actions we can all take to bring democracy To, By and For The People. This is NOT a left-right, Republican-Democrat, conservative-liberal issue. It is a DEMOCRACY ISSUE and should be “Issue One” for ALL citizens! Bring your "progressive", "conservative" (and "there’s-nothing-we-can-do") family and friends.
